    Hmm, well this definitely leads credence as to why people shouldn't be attempting this without considering the consequences.

    I was under the assumption that the home menu still was just there because I was thinking the homemenu was getting loaded from somewhere. But thinking about it, I'm guessing an infinite loop of nothing would happen.

    But instead you could cold boot into hbl and you could find a way out I suppose. Just not CFWbooter.

    I don't understand... if run a game from quick start menu, then it doesn't need the sig.patches for the wupinstalled games that would normally need or what??? I'm genuinely confused...:wacko:

    fw.img not bin (that has been bothering me everytime you post it)
    I think the app won't run as it looks for fw.img on your sd card. The unpatched won't work as the system gets hardcoded to run what the homemenu is which is the ds vc.

    When you say fw.bin is that referencing a NAND backup? Like the bin files created with those partition backup programs? or is it synonymous with the fw.img?

    the problem with coldboothax is that it replaces the homemenu with whatever you put in title id or so I've heard anyway so even booting clean won't fix that

    What could fix it is maybe a fw.img that patches the system.xml to the homemenu title

    This is why there is a need for an earlier exploit in the boot process?

    Whenever the system.xml is called it needs to have an alternative. Because I am guessing that is the only time the title id for the menu is being opened? other than the home button I guess? There is a way of jsut having a simplified HBL though right? That has you click a button to open the menu from the title ID?

    I noticed after I posted, wasn't sure how to acknowledge I had seen your reply to the other guy afterwards and figured I would just let it play out because it was a minor thing.

    I thought that maybe .bin was a way of referencing a nand file oppose to the img thing.

    Is there any way to use the Quick Launch menu with sigpatched sysNAND? If I set it on, the Wii U doesn't turn off properly. It blinks orange and I'm forced to shut it down by pressing the Power button for a few seconds.

    Can you bypass the "press the power button 4 seconds etc." message if you use the Quick Launch menu to boot directly into IOSUhax?

    Protip:

    Get brain age (cheapest one)
    Install multiboot haxchi
    Use quick launch.
    Bam.

    Its basically the same as coldbooting. Just one extra button press.

    If anything, the quick launcher could have some priiloader-esque settings added. But thats not even necessary.

    He must of made that post at like the same time since the commit was just 2 hours ago.

    What does quicklaunch have to do with anything though? Is that when the gamepad lights up and gives you boot options before actually turning on the wiiu?
